Fingers keep getting stuck under strings.

    Howdy, I'm currently learning "Scarified" by Racer X, it's going well but it seems when ever I do the first little solo about 37 seconds into it my fingers end up getting stuck under the strings. It's quite fast and I started learning it a few months ago but had a large break, before the break i could play that part pretty accurately so it's bothering me quite alot.

    Is there any tips on how to stop this. I'm trying to do a lighter touch but it still ends up happening. I've been practicing with a metronome for a few hours but it doesn't seem to be helping much.

    Would the problem be my strings? Or is my technique just not right?

    Thank you.
  2. You're digging in too much, if you can get a ramp installed on your bass that would certainly help, but i'd suggest just really focusing on your technique first.

    Practice it a lot slower and gradually build up speed.

    Lighter touch. Glide over dem strings on faster parts of songs.
